Henry lay on his bed, waiting for Jessica. Jessica had earlier called to inform him that she was coming. He was about going to the restuarant to
have dinner when he received Jessica's call, and decided not to go, since he believed that Jessica would bring food along with her. He prefer eating Jessica's food than going to the restuarant to eat. Few minutes later, a knock sounded on the door.
"that must be her" he said.
He stood up and rushed to the door. He opened the door to see Jessica standing at the door. His face curved in a smile when he realized that Jessica brought that same handbag she was with the last time she visited. That means she brought food.
'Jessica never disappoints' He thought.
"hi Henry" Jessica said.
"hi" Henry responded.
"please come in"
Jessica entered and sat on Henry bed. Henry also sat down beside her.
"where is Jewel?" Jessica asked.
"he has not returned yet" Henry responded.
"okay" she said.
"so what do you want to learn today?" Henry asked, and hoped that she would ask them to have dinner first, because he was really hungry.
But to his surprise, Jessica brought out her book and showed him the topic she wants him to explain to her.
Henry acted cool and collected the book from her.
Since she wanted him to explain the topic first, he would do just that. There's no need to rush. The food is here and not running away. When they are done with the lecture. They can eat the food then. As for now, hunger can wait.
Henry began the lecture immediately. He explained the topic to the best of his knowledge, and also asked Jessica questions from time to time, for him to be sure that she understood the topic. He spent an hour and 30minutes explaining the topic to Jessica. He was very tired and hungry when he was done. He couldn't wait for Jessica to dish the food so that they can eat.
Jessica opened her handbag and brought out the food flask. Henry's face curved in a smile when he saw the food flask.
'so we can now eat' Henry thought.
Jessica opened the food flask and looked into in.
"what!" she exclaimed.
"how can my cousin return my food flask to me without washing it."
She showed Henry the food flask.
"Henry can you see now. I gave my cousin food with this food flask, only for her to return it without washing it" she said.
Henry didn't respond. He just stared at her in disappointment. He was hoping that she brought food, only for her to shatter his heart with what she just said.
Jessica's face curved in a smile when she saw the disappointed look on Henry's face. Everything she did was already planned. She knew Henry would be expecting her to bring food, but she just had to disappoint him. She wanted him to see how important she is to him, and that was the only way she could show him. Henry might not notice her if she doesn't show him that she is important to him, and that was the best way to go about it.
"I will start leaving now" Jessica said and stood up.
"okay" Henry responded.
Jessica left the room very happy, because she knew that her plan worked.
Henry waited for few minutes, to be sure that Jessica would have gone far, before rushing to the restuarant to have dinner.
Lucy received some flowers from an unknown person, and a card telling her how special she is. She sat on her bed with the flowers, trying to figure out who could have sent it. Her phone suddenly started ringing. She took it from her bed to realize that the call was from Francis. She picked up the call immediately.
"hello Francis" she said.
"hello Lucy. can you come to the restuarant? I have something very important to tell you" Francis said.
"okay, I will be there in 10minutes" Lucy responded.
"okay, I'm waiting." Francis said.
Lucy ended the call and stared at the screen.
'could it be that Francis actually sent me these flowers" she thought.
She stood up from her bed, carried her handbag and left her room.
Francis sat quietly in the restuarant, waiting for Lucy. He had made up his mind to tell Lucy how he feels about her, since the last time didn't work out. The restuarant door opened and Lucy walked in. She went straight to meet Francis and sat opposite him.
"hi" Francis said.
"hi" Lucy responded.
"thanks for coming" Francis said.
"you said you want to tell me something" Lucy said.
"yes" Francis responded.
"okay, but before that, I just want you to know that you are my friend. my very good friend. no matter what happens between us, it won't change the fact that we are friends. we will continue being friends no matter what. you are a very good guy and I won't like to lose our friendship. I hope you will always be my friend no matter what" Lucy said.
Francis stared silently at Lucy as she speaks. He could only grab one thing from the numerous things she said, and that's the fact that she only sees him as a friend and nothing more. She just indirectly told him that she can't date him, because she only sees him as a friend. Maybe she has realized that he was the one that sent those flowers and decided to indirectly turned him down even before he ask her to date him. He stared silently at her, knowing fully well that Lucy had friendzoned him.
"so what do you want to tell me?" Lucy asked.
"nothing exactly. I just wanted us to hang out" Francis responded, masking his sadness with a smile.
They sat there silently for a while, before leaving the restuarant together.
Angel was seen pacing up and down in front of Daniel's hostel. She had called to inform him that she was at his hostel, and has been waiting impatiently for him. She wanted to confirm if Henry actually didn't submit Jewel's assignment to him.
Daniel emerged from his hostel few minutes later to meet Angel.
"sorry for keeping you waiting" Daniel said immediately he got to her.
"Daniel I want to confirm something from you, and I want you to be truthful to me." Angel said.
"okay" Daniel responded.
"how many assignments did Henry submit to you?" Angel asked.
"just one" Daniel responded.
"but Jewel said he gave Henry his assignment to submit for him." Angel said.
"It's either Henry intentionally didn't submit it, or Jewel didn't give him any assignment to submit. It could also be that Jewel didn't do the assignment and team up with Henry to lie against me, and make it look like I'm the one at fault. I think that should be the case. They actually agreed to lie against me and make me look like the one at fault. I have always known that those guys are evil. They can do anything to achieve their aim. Angel, I will advise you to stay away from them, because they can ruin your life." Daniel said.
Angel stared silently at Daniel, not sure why he was telling her that. she only wanted to confirm if Henry submitted Jewel's assignment to him and not to seek for his advice.
"okay thanks. I have to leave now." Angel said.
"okay" Daniel responded.
Angel turned and left, while Daniel stood still, staring at her retreating figure.
